This Saturday, May 12th is the National Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive! You have a week to go through your kitchen pantry, drawers, and cupboards! Any extra food items you have or know that your family will not use you can simply place in a bag and leave it by your mailbox! Your mail carrier will then collect the bags of food on Saturday as they are making their daily mail deliveries! Donating couldn’t be easier!!
I have a neighborhood cluster mailbox (you know, the kind where the whole street picks up their mail from 1 set of mail boxes) so each year I leave a note in my mailbox stating that my bags of food to donate are by my front door! My mail carrier doesn’t mind!
So if you need an excuse to go through your pantry and really spring clean and check those expiration dates, then here’s your opportunity!
Donate items like canned meats, fish, soup, bottled juice, vegetables, pasta, cereal and rice that do not require refrigeration. Please do not include items that have expired or are in glass containers.
Saturday evening my husband gets to help unload all the food from the mail trucks at our local post office! I can’t wait to see his pics of how much food comes in the help our local 3 Square Food Bank here in Las Vegas!
